Please report to General Manager any inattention of Operators.





            Subscribers, in using our wires, are reminded that they are within the possible hearing of Ladies and Gentlemen.  We ask all to be courteous, and request that all improper conduct on the part of our employees, or others, be promptly reported to the manager of the Exchange.

            The indiscriminate use of the Telephone by subscribers for their friends and customers is becoming a serious tax, consuming time and occupying the wires when others may be waiting.

            Please remember that each time the Telephone is used by a non-subscriber on business, not pertaining to the interests of a subscriber, it deprives all other members who may want to use the line of just so much time.

            Any trouble with wires or instruments should be reported promptly to the Exchange.





This Telephone is for the use of SUBSCRIBERS only ; therefore, please do not ask to use it.
